  Falcons | Atlanta working out Rex Grossman    Tue Aug 25, 01:00 PM

Updating a previous item, the Atlanta Falcons are working out free-agent QB Rex Grossman (Redskins) Tuesday, Aug. 25. Backup QBs T.J. Yates and Sean Renfree have failed to do much during training camp.

Footballguys view: Zero surprise here. Falcons offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan is a supporter of Grossman from their time working together with the Washington Redskins, Houston Texans and Cleveland Browns. The seasoned veteran knows the Shanahan offense like the back of his hand.

  Falcons | ATL interested in Rex Grossman    Wed Aug 19, 02:00 AM

The Atlanta Falcons are interested in free-agent QB Rex Grossman (Redskins), according to a source.

Footballguys view: What took so long for this story to come out? Kyle Shanahan is the new OC in Atlanta, and Grossman is his guy. The two have worked together on multiple teams, and Grossman could give the team valuable veteran depth behind Matt Ryan.

  Jets | Rex Grossman can be ready if called    Thu Aug 13, 03:09 PM

Free-agent Rex Grossman (Redskins) said he believes he could be ready in a week if the New York Jets were interested in signing him. Grossman said he is in good football shape and that the foot he sprained a few weeks ago should be healed in a week.

Footballguys view: We'll see if the Jets are comfortable with rookie Bryce Petty as the primary backup behind Ryan Fitzpatrick. We should see Geno Smith return to the team later in the year after his broken jaw heals, but he may not get his starting job back.

  Browns | Rex Grossman unlikely to join Browns    Mon Dec 22, 07:40 PM

Free-agent QB Rex Grossman (Redskins) is unlikely to join the Cleveland Browns for the Week 17 game against the Baltimore Ravens, as the two sides could not work out business logistics during Christmas week. The Browns have ruled out QB Johnny Manziel (hamstring) for Sunday's game, and QB Brian Hoyer (shoulder) is nursing an injury, leaving QB Connor Shaw as the potential starter.

Footballguys view: Grossman knows the Shanahan system well. He played under Kyle Shanahan in both Houston and Washington.

  Browns | Rex Grossman cut    Sun Aug 31, 04:10 PM

The Cleveland Browns have released QB Rex Grossman, according to a source.

Footballguys view: No surprise here. Grossman knows the Kyle Shanahan system, and he should be available to be an emergency quarterback if needed.

  Browns | Brian Hoyer happy about new QB    Sat Aug 16, 12:15 PM

Cleveland Browns QB Brian Hoyer said he is happy that the team signed QB Rex Grossman, because Grossman knows the offense system.

Footballguys view: Grossman is to Kyle Shanahan is what Tommy Maddox was to Dan Reeves year ago. The Grossman/Shanahan connection goes back to two different teams (Washington, Houston).

  Browns | Rex Grossman signs    Tue Aug 12, 09:50 AM

The Cleveland Browns signed free-agent QB Rex Grossman (Redskins) to an undisclosed deal and waived QB Tyler Thigpen.

Footballguys view: Grossman is reunited with Kyle Shanahan. The Browns could carry three QBs, but it is also possible that they are willing to trade Brian Hoyer now that Johnny Manziel's development appears to be on track. Hoyer worked with Texans head coach Bill O'Brien when both were in New England and the Texans are possibly regretting handing the keys over to Ryan Fitzpatrick. It's a longshot, but something to keep in mind when trying to make sense of this move.

  Dolphins | Unlikely to add Rex Grossman    Mon Aug 11, 01:53 PM

The Miami Dolphins likely will not sign free-agent QB Rex Grossman (Redskins). Grossman is scheduled to work out for another team.

  Dolphins | Rex Grossman to work out    Sun Aug 10, 11:48 PM

Free-agent QB Rex Grossman (Redskins) will work out for the Miami Dolphins Monday, Aug. 11, according to agent Drew Rosenhaus.

Footballguys view: We'll see if the Dolphins want to bring on another quarterback for the rest of camp. They might just be updating their emergency list here.

  Giants | No interest in Rex Grossman    Fri Apr 11, 09:08 PM

The New York Giants have not expressed any interest in free-agent QB Rex Grossman (Redskins) at this point.

Footballguys view: We'd be shocked if Grossman doesn't somehow/someway end up in Cleveland. He has followed OC Kyle Shanahan from Houston to Washington. Making the next stop in Cleveland only makes sense.

  Browns | May pursue Rex Grossman    Fri Mar 21, 09:24 PM

The Cleveland Browns have shown interest in free-agent QB Rex Grossman (Redskins), because he is familiar with offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan's system. Grossman likely would not compete for the starting job if signs with the Browns.

Footballguys view: Zero surprise here. Grossman has followed Shanahan to the last two stops he's made as a coach (Houston, Washington).

  Browns | Rex Grossman might be in crosshairs    Mon Mar 10, 10:02 PM

The Cleveland Browns will monitor the quarterback free-agent market, and free-agent QB Rex Grossman (Redskins) might be one of the targets due to his familiarity with offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan, who coached Grossman with the Washington Redskins.

Footballguys view: This is what most expect. Like Tommy Maddox followed Dan Reeves for years, Grossman has followed Shanahan to two different teams (Washington, Houston). He would have an advantage over other quarterbacks on the roster as he knows the system like the back of his hand. If Grossman makes the final roster, it would likely be as veteran depth behind Brian Hoyer and a rookie the Browns select in this year's draft.

  Redskins | Might part with Rex Grossman    Tue Feb 18, 10:42 PM

If the Washington Redskins part with one of their three quarterbacks during the offseason, head coach Jay Gruden might jettison QB Rex Grossman, who is no longer needed to mentor QBs Robert Griffin III and Kirk Cousins.

Footballguys view: We could see Grossman follow Kyle Shanahan to Cleveland. The two have worked together for years, dating back to their time together with the Texans.

  Browns | Rex Grossman would be logical addition    Tue Feb 4, 03:13 PM

Washington Redskins QB Rex Grossman (Redskins) could be a logical addition for the Cleveland Browns, according to Tony Grossi of ESPN Cleveland. Grossman is expected to be a free agent this offseason. He has been in offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan's system for five seasons and could help mentor a young quarterback.

Footballguys view: Grossman would give the Browns another veteran quarterback to go along with Brian Hoyer. The team is likely to select a quarterback like Johnny Manziel (Texas A&M) to be their starter in 2014.

  Browns | Rex Grossman an option    Tue Feb 4, 02:35 PM

ESPN Cleveland's Toni Grossi suggests that a logical trade option for the Cleveland Browns would be to acquire Washington Redskins QB Rex Grossman. Grossman played under Browns offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan for four years in Washington and one year with the Houston Texans.

Footballguys view: Rex Grossman is to Kyle Shanahan what Tommy Maddox was to Dan Reeves years ago. The Browns are likely to select a quarterback with their first-round pick. Many feel they'll take Johnny Manziel (Texas A&M).

  Redskins | Rex Grossman not expected back    Mon Feb 3, 02:03 PM

The Washington Redskins are not expected to re-sign impending free-agent QB Rex Grossman this offseason.

  Redskins | Robert Griffin III will be inactive    Wed Dec 11, 10:43 AM

Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III will be inactive in Week 15. QB Rex Grossman will be the backup quarterback.

Footballguys view: And there's our answer. Kirk Cousins will be the starting quarterback for Washington, and we are likely seeing the final days of Mike Shanahan as the team's head coach. Griffin may not be active for the rest of the season.

Footballguys view: Morgan has been a 11 million dollar bust as a free agent signing, although Pierre Garcon has more than made up for it after both were signed at the open of free agency last year.

Footballguys view: Logan Paulsen will start at tight end for the Redskins, but Jordan Reed will get most of the targets. He's a good pickup in very deep and TE premium leagues, and he's a solid desperation start this week.

  Redskins | Keeping 4 QBs for now    Sat Aug 31, 04:56 PM

The Washington Redskins are keeping QBs Robert Griffin III, Kirk Cousins, Rex Grossman and Pat White on their active roster for now.

Footballguys view: White is the interesting player of note here. He failed his first time around in the NFL after the Dolphins selected him in the second-round of the 2009 NFL draft. White is athletic and does a good job running the Redskins' pistol offense. He's still deliberate as a passer and his accuracy runs hot and cold.

  Redskins | Pat White to play entire game    Tue Aug 27, 03:08 PM

Washington Redskins head coach Mike Shanahan said QB Pat White will play the team's entire game Thursday, Aug. 29, unless he gets hurt. Rex Grossman would be next in line if White could not finish the game.

Footballguys view: White has looked good running the Pistol offense for the Redskins. He's an effort thrower who tries to be as decisive as possible. Kyle Shanahan is doing a good job of managing the reads for White and giving him a couple of quick options to throw to after the snap. White is athletic enough to make defenders miss as a scrambler and because of this he can freeze defenders on the option play.

  Redskins | Rex Grossman, Pat White expected to share snaps    Thu Aug 22, 10:20 PM

Washington Redskins QBs Rex Grossman and Pat White are expected to share snaps fairly evenly during the team's third preseason game because QB Kirk Cousins (foot) likely will not play in the game.

Footballguys view: We should see Cousins and starter Robert Griffin III both ready for the start of the regular season. Grossman is the veteran with a ton of experience in the Kyle Shanahan system. White is trying to make a comeback after being out of football since 2010.

  Redskins | Rex Grossman's roster spot could be in question    Wed Jun 26, 02:11 PM

Washington Redskins QB Rex Grossman's spot on the final roster could be in question if the team decides to carry only two quarterbacks in the roster. The team could consider keeping three quarterbacks on the final roster if there are still concerns about QB Robert Griffin III's (knee) injured knee.

Footballguys view: This means that Grossman's status will be a good external indicator of the Redskins' confidence in Robert Griffin III to hold up all year. If Grossman isn't needed in Washington, he could be a trade candidate to a team with a weaker backup like New Orleans or Seattle.

  Redskins | Rex Grossman re-signed    Wed Apr 3, 02:32 PM

The Washington Redskins have re-signed free-agent QB Rex Grossman. Terms of the contract were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: Grossman is a Mike (and Kyle) Shanahan favorite so it's no surprise he would get re-signed. It is interesting given the fact they just signed free agent QB Pat White to a contract yesterday. Grossman's roster spot isn't guaranteed but he knows the system and gives the team valuable depth.

The Minnesota Vikings will be looking for quarterbacks to compete with QB Joe Webb to the backup position for QB Christian Ponder this offseason. Free-agent QBs Derek Anderson (Panthers), Matt Moore (Dolphins), David Carr (Giants), Matt Leinart (Raiders), Byron Leftwich (Steelers), Bruce Gradkowski (Bengals), Jason Campbell (Bears) and Rex Grossman (Redskins) are options.

  Redskins | May re-sign Rex Grossman    Wed Jan 16, 03:22 PM

The Washington Redskins may consider re-signing free-agent QB Rex Grossman this offseason so he can serve as the backup quarterback in case QB Robert Griffin III (knee) is not be ready to play next season.

Footballguys view: Grossman knows the Shanahan system dating back to his days with the Texans. He'll be a valuable reserve player as the team's third QB. If Griffin is unable to begin the season then we'll see Kirk Cousins as the team's starter.
